  • Caesalpinia Spinosa (Tara) Fruit Pod Extract and Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Sprout Extract: blocks IR and blue light-induced free radical formation as well as protects mitochondrial DNA. Inhibits screen and light-induced skin damage while protecting barrier integrity, preventing inflammation, and replenishing density due to sun exposure.
  • Orobanche Rapum Extract: an award-winning antioxidant extract that reactivates the natural skin renewal cycle from top to bottom with 6 synergistic actions designed to balance microflora, reinforce firmness, and energize skin.
  • Alpha-glucan Oligosaccharide: a breakthrough prebiotic sugar complex clinically proven to promote the growth of friendly bacteria, protect the pH of skin, and prevent proliferation of harmful microorganisms that can lead to skin problems. Significantly strengthens skin’s natural defenses to ensure that it stays healthy and clear.
  • Polysaccharide: a bio-fermented sugar that combines superb balancing, protective, and antimicrobial activity, while soothing signs of physical and environmental aggression. Restores skin comfort and helps balance skin’s bacterial flora. Decreases redness and irritation caused by UV, retinoids, and skin resurfacing agents.
  • Xylitylglucoside, Anhydroxylitol, and Xylitol: cellulose derived sugars optimize water transport to boost moisture reserves within cellular water channels (aquaporins). Strengthens the skin’s barrier function by boosting synthesis of epidermal hyaluronic acids, proteins, enzymes and lipids, and enhancing skin’s volume and plumpness.
  • Hyaluronic Acid: a bioactive humectant that delivers instantaneous plumping moisture into the skin’s surface and promotes healthy cell formation and skin recovery after aggression. Helps cells maintain moisture reservoirs for long-lasting hydration.
  • Red Seaweed: multifunctional algae extract from frigid Scandinavian waters protects the skin against pollution, while delivering superior hydration and rapidly boosting the amount of natural hyaluronic acid in the skin. Increases production of ceramides for a more supple and resilient barrier, as well as filaggrin, an epidermal protein essential for the synthesis of the NMF (natural moisturizing factor).

Urban Defense Gel

I play 170 rounds of golf a yr. I have worked with many skin consultants and have used many High end skin care products. My present skin care consultant recommended Urban Defense Gel. Dry skin on my ears is basically gone, redness on face after golf is gone. I am very satisfied with the results I have experienced.

Great Product!

I use this after cleansing and toning during the day. I even use it on the tops of my hands. It appears to both protect and moisturize, but my preference is to use the face cream over the defense gel, and it’s perfect. I highly recommend this to anyone, you’ll have happy skin!

Great gel serum!

This Urban Defense gel serum is incredible! I’ve been using it for a week straight and I can already tell it’s working the way it should be. The texture is amazing and I love the light scent. For me, Volto Urbano products have been mire than just products — they’ve been an entire experience — an amazing one at that. The ingredients are great, the packaging is stunning and I love that their brand is aimed towards being anti-pollution. I love less Han 20 miles from two huge plants that pump out pollution 24hrs a day/365 days a year so I’m around pollution constantly. I really want to get the rest of their line because if I had choose one brand to use forever; it’d be VU. The products are amazing and the team members have been the absolute sweetest, seriously some of the nicest people I’ve had the pleasure to deal with from a brand. I’m doing the 30 day challenge so I’m really excited to see how my skin improves in the next 3 weeks! And I will report back with results!

WOW

I’m 30 years old (male) and I rarely used any product on my face until now - except occasional sun screen or moisturizer.
I decided to do a full regimen builder (to make my gf happy) and i can only say one thing - WOW!
The feeling even after the first day is amazing and I could notice the difference - the skin on my face was feeling so much better. It felt just right - the best i can explain it is that every layer felt fed, satisfied and balanced.
The 5 steps sounded a bit much, but after doing it that evening and the next morning - it instantly became an easy routine, since i was looking forward to the effect and satisfaction it brought to me.
The Urban Defense Gel is probably my favorite, because of the combination of blue color, natural smell and the feeling of my skin absorbing it instantly!
I’ve been using the VU products for almost a month now and besides feeling a lot better about myself - the people around me started noticing my skin glowing.
At this point i did a bit more research into the whole idea behind these products, and now i feel even better considering the value proposition that I’ve realized.
I already referred a few friends and they seem to share my enthusiasm - keep it up VU, you’re definitely on to something!

THIS!!!

This is Step 6 in my daily routine and my favorite step! I LOVE the texture, the smell and everything that it does. It feels incredibly nourishing, like vitamins for your face. This erases the dull gray tired look that computer screens can cause. I immediately look like I've been outside in fresh air - that just back from vacation look. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this product.

Feels so good!

I've only used the product for a few days so I can't say yet if it is helping with defense from the elements. I can say that I love how it feels on my skin. I am thrilled that it is a gel because I already use other moisturizers. When I apply it, my skin feels tingly and still clean. It looks so smooth! I am glad to have a product that will protect my skin from computer screens. I am rarely out in the sun but have my face in my phone all day! Excited to see the long term results!

Simply Perfect

I received my package yesterday. I live in Chicago having harsh winters and hot and humid summers my skin has always needed help. I started with the facial cleanser to take off my makeup from the day, the smell is mild but so refreshing. I continued with the mask (WOW) my skin felt so good. I left it on for the 8 minutes as directed. Then the eye cream, serum (Urban Defense Gel) lastly the moisturizer.. I went to bed with my skin feeling like butter and glowing. I woke up cleansed and refreshed. This morning I repeated minus the mask. I then put my makeup on, my skin is absolutely glowing and this is just from one day. The picture that I attached is from my car unedited no filters etc just me going to work. I cant wait to see how my skin will look and feel in a month. Thanks for making me feel so refreshed!
